Black Ceramic Shift Knob Trim

Hello.

I have this shift knob in my car.


I saw a thread where the user had black ceramic trim on his shift knob. I've looked everywhere and I can't find that same trim for sale other than the link OP posted (I tried purchasing but they emailed me saying its out of stock without a restock date).

Does anyone have any ideas on where to find it?

You have to buy a complete shifter for a model it's offered for, remove the faceplate and the (ceramic or plastic) trim on both, and then swap and replace.

Here's one for example.

Ouch, for that price, I'd become friends with Gloss Black Wrap.

Wrap doesn't look or feel like ceramic glass.

lol how often do you really need to touch the shifter than you really care how it feels. its an automatic and you have paddle shifters. put it in drive and go. maybe move it to the left here and there but its not like you are constantly rowing gears with it. wrap it and see how that goes first. its maybe $1 in vinyl.
